romney, especially on the heels of mitt romney's strong performance during that debate, he's already looking at victory and they are sort of teasing their supporters saying, look, he thinks he's going to win this thing so donate now. they are pushing really hard. why are they doing this? because they need money in the key battleground states. the race is very close nationwide, but specifically in these battleground states like ohio, virginia, also in florida, those are states where a lot of money is being poured in for the ground operation and the wall-to-wall tv ads you see. they are pulling in a lot of money but a lot of money is going out the door. >> dan lothian, of course, on thursday we'll be watching the vice presidential debate as well. appreciate it, dan. >>> people are picking a president today in venezuela. there's the man trying to hold on to the job. president hugo chavez. he voted today in caracas. since chavez was first elected 13 years ago, today's contest was the strongest challenge to his role. latin america is certainly paying close attention to this important elec

the same thing about the debate performance from mitt romney the other night in denver, that his position seemed to be shifting a little bit. on this, on the specific comment you just played on the 47% controversy, i think what you heard last night in that interview with fox news is what mitt romney would have said in denver if the 47% controversy had come up in that first presidential debate. it didn't. it was not raised by president obama. it was not raised by the moderator jim lehrer and i think the romney campaign was surprised on that. mitt romney had an answer to go and that's the one you heard last night. as for what you're talking about on whether mitt romney is shifting his policies, the obama campaign thinks he is. listen to the president yesterday on the campaign trail. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy and yet the fellow on the stage last
